With Spotify playlist as your alarm tone, you will not have to listen to the obnoxious buzz ever again, which should make your mornings a lot less gloomy. Since then, the service has received quite a bit of criticism, especially from those who are already subscribed to Google's Play Music service. You will need to make sure that the latest versions of both the Clock app and Spotify are installed on your device.

Original article, July 31 at 11:11 a.m. ET: Most of us use our phones for alarm clocks in the morning, but normal alarm sounds can be so... alarming. Normally, anyway. This time, though, the Clock app is getting Spotify integration.

Tap on the Spotify tab.

"This has been a top Spotify user request for years, and we can't wait to see music fans picking their favorite tracks, artists, and playlists to kick-start their day", Spotify's VP Business Development Jorge Espinel said in a statement. As a part of the latest Google Clock and Spotify apps for Android, you 'll be able to choose one of the millions of songs available on the platform whether you're a free or premium user to play when your alarm goes off. Both Spotify premium and free users can wake up to their favorite songs with this new integration. After switching off your alarm, you now have the ability to continue listening to Spotify music.

Google's Clock app comes preinstalled on some Android devices.

If you don't see the new feature yet, don't worry - it's rolling out globally this week, so it may take a few days to get to you.
